Nokia Lumia 800 to hit Australia's major carriers in March
Nokia Australia announced today that the Nokia Lumia 800 will be available from major carriers like Optus, Telstra and Vodafone, and from major retailers in March. The Windows Phone powered handset has been garnering a lot of interest in the country according to the manufacturer's managing director, Chris Carr.

Just in case you have let the specs of the phone slip from your mind, the Nokia Lumia 800 carries a 3.7 inch AMOLED display with WVGA resolution. The pixel density is 252.15ppi. Windows Phone 7.5 is driving the phone and under the hood is a single-core 1.4GHz Scorpion processor. 512MB of RAM is aboard as is 16GB of native storage. 5GB of additional cloud-based SkyDrive storage is available. An 8MP camera on back with a 28mm Carl Zeiss wide-angle lens has AF and dual LED flash. The camera captures 720p video at 30fps.

Nokia didn't release any pricing for the Nokia Lumia 800 in Australia, but the Finnish based manufacturer continues to spread the Lumia line around the globe. According to Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, the Finnish company has already sold more than 1 million Lumia devices.

I beleive if this phone was launched as fast as the iPhone in many countries and the lumia 900 WAS NOT announced before the launch, it could have sold so many of lumia 800s round about 10 million in two quarters i guess. what do you think?

Now the question is, will it sell well? Windows Phone has been neglected for a while here. Last time we got a Windows Phone handset was back in Jan last year (HTC 7 Pro I think it was). It's about time we got something new here. But, will people buy it? Since we also have the N9 here as well, this can be a challenge.
